Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

School districts in San Mateo County receive very different levels of funding. Some neighboring districts have more than twice the resources for public education as the Redwood City School District. These inequities make it more challenging for our district to create the very best conditions for learning - like small classes for early learners and retaining great teachers. Our funds help close the gap between the resources our district receives and the true cost of educating our students.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The Redwood City Education Foundation provides support for the Redwood City School District, covering the gap between decreasing tax revenues and the resources our district needs to offer a top-notch education to the 7,500 students enrolled in our public schools. This pioneering work promotes educational excellence while reducing the devastating impact of funding inequities in our county. Since 1983, the Redwood City Education Foundation has funded STEM, the arts, and professional development for our teachers.

A child’s path from kindergarten to college is complex, yet we know that great teachers and well-resourced classrooms help pave the way. And since every child’s path is different, we want teachers to be responsive with just the right resource to make a difference, when and where it's needed most. The Equity Fund provides our teachers with the resources they need to unlock academic potential and keep every child on the road to college.

The Redwood City Education Foundation has a strong board of directors representing the various sectors of the Silicon Valley community coupled with experienced leadership.

We have deep connections with our school district and the broader community.

As the only nonprofit organization raising funds for all of our schools, the Redwood City Education Foundation is uniquely positioned to advocate for equitable funding to support public education in our city.

Since 1983 the Redwood City Education Foundation, with the support of our community, has provided resources to the Redwood City School District to help lessen the impact of funding inequities. We will continue to provide gap funding and to advocate for our students until California provides full and fair funding to our schools.
